first for vandalism!
How is the situation in Germany, are the trains still packed af? I've never felt so good that I don't have to live in your shithole country and endure all this misery. And it will only get worse in the future, thanks to your (((government))) and gullible plebs.

>>1810023Last weekend was the Pentecost weekend in Germany. The trains have always been overcrowded on that weekend but now people blame the 9 Euro Ticket for it for some reason.That weekend, the ticket, a lot of large scale renovations and upgrades of the already over-capacity rail network and the lack of spare trains created a perfect storm and laid bare how neglected public transit truly has become by a vague goal to become profitable in the 90s and decades of conservative pro-car politicians that had control over the rail infrastructure to this very day.Normally I don't notice a big change to be honest. The RE trains are a bit more packed than usual, probably because some try to travel through Germany by regional trains and the RE ones are the fastest trains where the ticket is valid. But as soon as I get into the more local ones like an S-Bahn it's business as usual.
>>1810038The 2.5 *billion* euros spent on that retarded populist measure would have gone a long way to actually improve a train system so bad that it's causing trains to crash.Or maybe Germany could actually fulfil their 30 year old commitment of expanding the access lines to the NEAT, like even fucking Italy did, and for which Switzerland invested a shitload of money.Germany is a joke country.
>>1810040I wouldn't complain about the ticket too much. It created a lot media attention for public transit and demands for more affordable fares.Sadly Germany doesn't have the same culture, political and societal willingness and laws to make rapid developments in rail. When the Swiss want to build a track, they just fucking do it. In Germany there will be a dozen lawsuits from environmentalists and NotInMyBackyard people as soon it gets announced and simple constructions turn into generational projects.And when you have any idiots in power during those decades where they realize that every train track except like Berlin-Munich is unprofitable and hurr public infrastructure needs to turn a profit (???) they will can the project and built the 200th highway instead.
>>1810040>German politicians are a fucking joke.FTFYIt is possible to laugh about those incompetent, criminal nutjobs, but not about the results of their actions.At this point I'm almost sure we'll get a German Trump as chancellor in 2025.
>>1810043That's another thing that makes me fucking madNow politicians want "competition on the rail" because muh free market on an infrastructure that is inherently monopolistic by design.Because it worked out so well for all the other private rails in the worldBe prepared for the future where the only remaining services are from Big City A to Big City B with no interopability, customer service or replacements or alternatives for canceled trains. You can just start your own train company after all!Thanks for reading my blog
>>1810043>I wouldn't complain about the ticket too much.I don't really care about the ticket much, because, and I thank God for it every day, I don't live in Germany. I just find it pathetic how a supposedly respectable country just takes retarded banana-republic tier populist measures, while leaving actual issues unsolved, and hurting neighboring countries because if it.>>1810044>muh politiciansand who voted for them?>we'll get a German Trump as chancellor in 2025You'll get an absolute majority of the Greens and finish the metamorphosis into eco-tyranny; then you'll pay 80% in taxes, transport everything by Lastenrad, eat literal bugs and have no heating or electricity to save the climate and fight the evil Putin.I hate Germany so much it's unreal.
>>1810050me 2. what a pathetic nation full of spineless, fagmask wearing cucks. pic related, RE42 to Leipzig today. Cant wait when the summer heat waves will come soon and the cuckmuzzled plebs in the trains will collapse en masse inside the fully packed trains without insufficient aircon. Such cucks dont deserve it better.
>>1810056>when the summer heat waves will come soonWouldn't be too sure about that. The media people have enough topics this summer.No need to run the climate-change cow through the village this time.
>>1810056I always considered mask mandates to be absolute retardation (since it's obvious they're pointless, look at sweden), but there's a special place in hell for countries still having mask mandates on public transport even now.
Is this a normal day in germany? Even your ICEs are often delayed, sometimes to one hour - or even more if you are really unlucky. Thats literally 3rd world-level tier, impressive for a once sophisticated country where the punctuality of your trains were legendary.
>>1810071Yeah that sounds about right. Last time I got on a train was in September last year, roughly 350 km ride to see my relatives. Couple of delays and straight up trains that wouldn't arrive at all on almost every station. What a mess
>>1810050>I don't live in Germany.>I hate Germany so much it's unreal.lol. lmao
Just to remind, this weekend is a big rail-event in the eastern part of Switzerland, to celebrate 175 years of railways. Will you CHADs also go there? For me from the western part its a steal, to travel there for just 26.50 in the first class - so i will for sure.https://175-jahre.ch/region-ost/
>>1810050>an absolute majority of the GreensAfter the upcoming black-outs and freeze deaths, that seems exceedingly unlikely.They aren't even wrong about a lot of their "renewable power" talk, but they have no fucking idea how to pull it off without getting a significant chunk of us killed.Are you Swiss? Lobby your government to disconnect from the German power grid ASAP. It is going to fail in the near-term future.
>>1810116No, it's 30something francs for the Ostwind Tageskarte plus x2 for me and the wife, I'm poor as shit and can't afford that.
>>1810033na, but you can get a fuck you from me.
>>1810069>I always considered mask mandates to be absolute retardationI always liked mask mandates, because it keeps the retards at bay. Like all the idiots sperg out and rather take the car and suddenly only friendly and nice people left in the train.
>>1810016>senseless destruction of property>brown handChecks out.
>>1810144I'd never bother with taking a bicycle on a train in Germany anyway, it's too much of a headache to figure out which trains allow it and which don't and how much it costs and when and where the bicycle ticket remains valid. Fuck all that noise. If I wanted to travel by train with a bike regularly I'd just take a folding bike in a bag, those don't count as bicycles, they count as large luggage.
Hi bros, in the end of the month I'll be flying in to Dortmund, where can I buy the 9€ ticket to travel to Hamburg or Munchen? What are the best cities to visit in Germany? Is Berlin worth the time?
>>1810134>swiss>poor How do you fuck up that bad?t. Poor
>>1810190Everywhere. At a train station at any fucking ticket vending machine. Practically all bus drivers sell it as well.You can even buy it online: https://www.bahn.de/angebot/regio/9-euro-ticket
>>1810190Any rail ticket machine, any rail service point, any service point of any local transport agency. Reminder that it's only valid with your name written on the line and a photo ID alongside it.Whether certain cities are worth visiting especially on slow regional trains depends on how much time you have for your trip overall and whether you wanna maintain Dortmund as your base of operation (maybe you have free lodging with someone you know) or whether Dortmund just happens to be your arrival point for planet ticket cost reasons and you're willing to focus on another region or whether you want to see as many different regions as possible. For travelling with slow ass regional trains you will have to assume that your average straight line speed is around 40-50 kph depending on how many times you have to switch trains, so a journey from Dortmund to Hamburg takes 5-6 hours, to Berlin 7-8 hours and to Munich 10-11 hours. Also prepare to miss a connection every so often. If you wanna see another corner of the country you better make it count by staying a for few days, you're not gonna zip there, see the city and zip back in a day. For cities worth seeing in Germany the countless articles you can find on Google are probably better advisors than me.
>>1810190>Is Berlin worth the time?Honestly: No. That said, skipping Berlin when visiting Germany is probably a little odd.
>>1810194>whether Dortmund just happens to be your arrival point for planet ticket cost reasonsThat's exactly the reason, Dortmund is just my entry point so I'll start exploring from there and not go back at the end of the day. Also I haven't booked a flight back so I have plenty of time, although my budget on other end is rather limited.With this 9€ ticket do I still have to book my place on regional trains or is just be at the station and time and go inside when the train I want arrives?What's the better website to check German train timetable and connections?>>1810196A while back I spoke with this German chick and she told me to visit Hamburg, that is really nice, more so than Berlin. I still want to go there, even though I'm not into the Berghain or electronic music scene I do want to see as much of the old -2nd WW- Berlin as possible.I like to walk a lot so visiting some of the places where Bourne Identity was filmed would be neat as fuck. Or rent a bike and cover the city for a couple days at least.
>>1810204I actually liked the rural areas south of Dortmund, many quaint little towns, good beer, nice food. Düsseldorf is pretty party in summer. If you want to go for the big cities, Hamburg, it's really nice.
>>1810204Hamburg: Absolute must-visit. Especially for Miniatur Wunderland, but also in general.If you land in Dortmund, as >>1810209 says, there is a lot to see in the closer area.Düsseldorf, Cologne, Bonn...maybe take a ride on the Wuppertaler Schwebebahn or go hiking along the Ruhr river.Berlin is without exaggeration a fucking shithole. As a German, I'm embarrassed by the entire city: Its people, its rulers and its absolute state.
>>1810209>>1810219I will be going alone and although I love hiking I already do that a lot in my own country, I want to see old city centers, monuments and statues, quaint streets and churches, maybe lay down in some nice park. Other than that and as I've said I would love to find that 90s german vibe you get from the movies, even though I know very well it doesn't exist anymore anywhere in western Europe.
>>1810223Sounds like you should take a look at the German section of the "1000 Places to see before you die" guide and tick those off.
>>1810223If you want old and quaint go to small cities like Marburg, Trier, Heidelberg, Freiburg i.B., Rothenburg o.d.T., Bamberg.
>>1810225>>1810226>>1810227Thanks a lot for the recommendations, boys. Just to finish the off topic, how hard is it to hitchhike in Germany?
>>1810229I'm not sure how long it takes to find a ride because it's unusual and drivers may be hesitant, but at the very least I can assure you it's legal and you won't be given a hard time as long as you don't blatantly violate traffic safety in the process.
>>1810098>you can only hate a country you live inlol, lmao
>>1810027Seethe more, Ossi :)You will never be swiss
>>1810146Nice and friendly people like you who have petty little power fantasies of forcing people to wear a disgusting cloth over their face for no logical reason other than to signal their submission to the government and insult everyone putting this silly rule into question, and get triggered at people who don't obey this dumb rule. Call me crazy but that doesn't sound nice and friendly at all. Sounds like a bunch of Mitläufer like in any totalitarian system who just enjoy feeling powerful by subjugating and snitching on others.
>>1810191It's a long story but basically uprooted by boomer parents and had to restart my life at 30
>>1810239Yeah anon it's not illegal to ask for a ride.
>>1810244Dude, you're human garbage. Not having you around is a blessing.
>>1810251no, your cocksucking bootlickers are. Now get your boosters, wear the fagmask and wageslave for the system and NEETs like me - while i am chilling on my couch the whole day and leeching off your tax money.

Fellow germans, how was this weekend in the 9€-cattlecars so far? As a swiss i couldnt complain - the train trip to the eastern part was nice and most time the first class coaches were half-empty, as oppose to the plebs class full with noisy rugrats, mutts and other hoi-polloi who were too stingy to pay the 8 francs difference for a 1st class ticket. I didn't care about the events themselves, since the venues were also full with people - and i hate people. So I did rather go hiking in the beautiful nature of Appenzell, without all the riff-raff. And then i was lucky to have the opportunity to ride a historic train (a BDe 4/4 "Wyländerli from SBB Historic plus some EW1 coaches) from St. Margarethen to Landquart - that was really nice. The old cars indeed have more soul.
>>1810917Why are you such a pretentious asshole in every post?
>>1810946being pretentious is normally a big nono in swiss zwinglian society.
>>1810065It looks now like there is indeed a heat wave coming next weekend to europe - up to 37 degrees celsius in some regions in Germany.

Why Germany refuse to build any meaningful network of 300km/h+ high speed rail track that do not need to slow down mid-trip for legacy sectionsI asked Siemens and their answer was "to protect environment"But wouldn't attracting more people onto train but providing faster and more reliable service better achieve the goal?
>>1811132I have no idea what the reply by Siemens is supposed to mean there, but the general idea is that lines in Germany are supposed to be multi-purpose.All types of traffic (long/short-distance, passenger/freight) are supposed to use the same lines, the same tracks.That's rather difficult, if not impossible, on 300+ km/h lines. A too massive variation in speed between trains extremely lowers the capacity of a line.The layout of lines designed for trains capable of speeds that high also often makes the use by weaker trains impossible. Take the KRM: Only ICE3 and ICE4 are allowed to run there due to the steep inclination. No other types of train.Unlike a country like France, Germany has many large agglomeration zones, and unlike Japan, those zones aren't essentially along a straight line.
>>1811306>All types of traffic (long/short-distance, passenger/freight) are supposed to use the same lines, the same tracks.But whyKorea tried to build a high speec line together with an urban rail, but realized the extra cost on signaling system and the loading gauge for high spees train will cost too much extra and not to mention disruption to urban rail service, and decided to split the project.Japan currently have the Seikan tunnel sharing track between freight and high speed rail, which severely limit train speed at this section, and also restrict freight train operation, causing them to think of how to separate high speed train operation by time to allow the trains run faster whenever they operateAnd China simply banned freight trains from high speed rail tracks, while also pushing out slow passenger trains from high speed track with new low speed train locomotives and as high speed track gain speed improvement> The layout of lines designed for trains capable of speeds that high also often makes the use by weaker trains impossible. Take the KRM: Only ICE3 and ICE4 are allowed to run there due to the steep inclination. No other types of train.Supposedly, a high speed line should be designed with as little gradient as possible, to allow high speed operation.>Unlike a country like France, Germany has many large agglomeration zones, and unlike Japan, those zones aren't essentially along a straight line.Hamburg-RhineRuhr-Frankfurt-Munich is on a single line the same way as Japanese cities are on a single line from Sapporo to Kagoshima. And yet Japan still manage to build high speed rails to cities outside this line, like to Hokuriku and Niigata.
>>1811369>RhineRuhrCologne/Düsseldorf? Okay. The ruhrzone? Could be easily skipped to save on time.Also doesn't change it extremely lengthens the trip-time between Hamburg and Frankfurt:Cologne-Hannover-Berlin makes sense.Hamburg-Cologne-Frankfurt not so much, but you need Hamburg-Cologne, Cologne-Frankfurt as well as Hamburg-Frankfurt (at least also stopping in Hannover).Germany isn't remotely as easy to turn into an efficient HSR-network as Japan or France.Deutschlandtakt looks like a good plan towards that effort. We need to put that plan into action instead of continuously creating new Luftschlösser, that never come to fruition anyway.
>>1810939To troll retards like you who take the bait
>>1810204if you're in the Berlin area and want some history memes I highly recommend Potsdam. iirc you can get a railpass that includes the train to Potsdam plus the airport along with general Berlin travel. Yeah there's not much to see but it's still cool seeing the Reichstag with your own eyes or witnessing the majesty of the Victory Column or Brandenburg Gate in real life. I think I enjoyed Austria more though as far as general pre-war Germanic culture goes but I'm sure a million autistic yuropoors are gonna screech about all the cultural differences kek

Once you get to Hamburg it's not so long to get to Berlin, I say definitely worth it.

>>1813841>White peopleYou mean "alternative medicine nutcases".In Germany the anti-corona-vaxx movement ("Querdenken 711") was literally started by the left-green milieu, which had always been opposed to standard vaccinations of all types.Then the wind turned (the people higher in their hierarchy decided that vaccination is a must) and then they tried their best to mark all the anti-vaxxers as Nazis."We? We never were against the vaxx. That's always been the Nazis and we are no Nazis!"Forcing a vaccination is most certainly anti-constitutional. A strong recommendation would have been A-okay in my eyes, though.I'm personally vaccinated and "boostered", but only because that was my own, personal, free choice. (You have to sign off exactly that when taking the vaccination after all.) Had the government made it compulsory, I would have objected.
>>1813833Germs are ultra cucked. All they have done in the entirety of their history is to beg the government to look after them, to give them retarded constraints because they are too dumb to function on their own.

So masks were literally counter productive.
>>1814030>stupid people have X opinion>"I'm going to have the opposite opinion, just because stupid people have that opinion. I'm very smart"
>>1814483>stay coping, masks have never been empirically proven to do anything at all.wait I have to correct myself, they've been proven to get microplastics into people's lungs, reduce oxygen intake and inhibit speech development in small children because they couldn't see people's faces. They also caused mountains of unnecessary trash.
>>1813841>>1814486Spain (40m people, average age 44.9) had 1459 flu deaths in 2019Japan (80m people, average age 48.6) had ca. 3600 flu deaths in 2019.Japan had MORE flu deaths than Spain despite muh masks (and despite heaving one of the best health systems in the world).
>>1814489Japan has 120 million people, not 80, and they have less than triple the Spanish deaths
>>1814501fair enough, my bad.Though the difference is still negligible1459/47 = 313600/125 = 29
>>1814504Then you have to take into account that Japan is older, and older people are more at risk, and that the country is generally more crowded than Spain.

>>1814506>average age 44 vs 48again, negligible difference.>more crowded than spainnope, in Spain the vast majority live in very dense cities.however Japan does have a better health system, that would rather explain the sligh discrepancy of slightly more aged population + slightly less flu mortality. But the difference is still so small, it's within statistical error. If the masks were doing anything, there would be a noticeable difference.Same with Sweden and other countries. So they had more deaths than other scandi countries, yet fewer than Germany, which has been extremely autistic about mask usage and other restrictions. So saying that masks actually do something has no empirical basis outside of laboratory experiments.

It's amazing that there still are people who are treating this """"vaccine"""" like it isn't practically useless and causing uncountable side effects. I mean, yeah we get it, your a spineless tool and fell for the pressure and thought you'd get your life back, and now you don't want to accept that you let yourself be injected with the gene altering mystery fluid, so you think that lashing out at those who were smart enough not to get the "jab" will make it easier, but bruh just get over it and stop the cope, it's sad.And yeah I totally can believe that "science" on masks radically changed from "they're useless" to "we must all wear masks or it's the end of the world" in a matter of a few days, with literally all figures of authority accepting to completely change their mind on this right away, because we all know that happens all the time in the world of science.

>>1816250/Pol/iticians are trash. All of them. Sometimes they make decisions, that are actually helping their people, but in most cases it's mostly about who promised them the most in exchange for that decision. They are maximising their local profit function: acting in the best interest of their voters more often than not doesn't do that. And the professional media people aren't helping, since they are largely in on the scheme. They even feel "save enough" at this point, that they aren't trying to hide it anymore. There are more than enough powers covering their asses. After all, who could dare to call them names for "doing the right thing"?Which isn't helping /n/, either. Using public transport shouldn't be "the right thing to do", it should be "the most efficient, most convenient thing to do". And it could easily be that.It's not a sacrifice to use public transport. Why do the media people keep treating it like that? The only exception, that comes to mind, is Harald Schmidt with his "Black Mamba".

This you can apply to /n/: "ride the fucking train you bigot". No convincing, no making it attractive, just expecting it out of emotional hysteria (muh climate change, muh putin, muh traffic, whatever).Notice that when you actually confront these people, you get replies like >>1816291 or >>1816302, no argument, just insulting the dissenters, because they feel so sure in their position out of its massiveness, not because it's in any way dialectically sound.
>>1816532>Notice that when you actually confront these people, you get replies like >>1816291 (You) or >>1816302, no argument, just insulting the dissentersBut there was no dissent, just a nobody spouting nonsense not even remotely based in reality.

Not just bikes made an entire episode about cycling in Switzerland:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWnreLG_cvctl;dr, public transport is excellent but cycling infrastructure is shite, especially in Zürich.
>>1815762That incident doesn't get directly referenced, but this is probably also in relation to that:https://www.eba.bund.de/SharedDocs/Fachmitteilungen/DE/2022/09_2022_Regelmaessige_Ueberpruefung_der_betriebssicherheitsrelevanten_Kompetenzen_in_der_Nutzung_der_Punktfoermigen_Zugbeeinflussung.html
>>1822980>cycling infrastructure is shite, especially in Zürich.kek wtfwhat are these retards comparing switzerland to? the netherlands?
>>1822980Don't worry, the left/green/woke/prog government has a solution of fucking up public transit to benefit bikes. Surely nothing can go wrong there.
>>1824607>the left/green/woke/prog government has a solution>Surely nothing can go wrong there.Au contraire: Everything will go wrong.
>>1824607Oh, don't worry, they will fuck over cars to benefit bikes. They love public transport. >>1824516they are comparing it to cities with actually good cycling infrastructure. I know it is catastrophic, but Switzerland is lagging behind considerably. And since the attractiveness of our cities is what makes Switzerland rich it is important to keep an eye on this. If we want to stay competitive wee need to have better cycling infrastructure and less cagers shitting the city up daily.
>>1824649>Oh, don't worry, they will fuck over cars to benefit bikes. They love public transport.imagine believing thiseven the former VBZ director recently said they're fucking up public transport bigtime
>>1824650back to the padded room please
>>1824667>no source>muh Zürich badok
>>1824712>everything is fine>Greens come into power>everything is fuckedEvery. Single. Time.When will people learn?
>>1824716And it's not even like zurich was some sort of car driver's wet dream, it was one of the most transit-friendly cities in the world where you could perfectly get around without a car. They're just looking for problems for the solution.
>>1824712He's pretty alone with his "opinion". On the other hand the population of Zürich keeps voting for more cycling infrastructure and keeping cagers out and you keep coping in whatever shithole you NEET around. Pretty nice state of affairs.
>>1824727Currently car traffic is seen as that #1 problem in Zürich by the population, missing cycling infrastructure is the second big thing. Like 60%+ of all households in the city don't even have a car, but car infrastructure takes up most of street space, generates a lot of traffic from outside and diminishes living quality in residential areas. So yeah, I hope after a dozens votes or so to we finally manage to keep daily traffic avalanche out of Zürich and after 30 years or so manage to build some cycling infrastructure that actually deserves the name.
>>1824733City traffic infrastructure isn't built for its wealthy inhabitants, but for the poor fucks that have to commute into it, because they can't afford living there.A traditional solution for that would be to build parking spaces at the city limits and to force car owners to use public transport from there.Bikes are not a viable solution for that problem.
>>1824749Take the train and enjoy some of the best public transport infrastructure. Otherwise stop crying, cars are simply not meant for inner city traffic. Zürich is competing with other cities in Europe for best location and looking like a carmaggedon from the 1970 is not an option.
>>1824733You'd think that if there were so much infrastructure for cars you could build bike lanes without negatively impacting public transport but there you are.It's not like you need roads for more than just private cars.
>>1824755>enjoy some of the best public transport infrastructureZurich is working hard to remedy that tho :^)
>>1824878>You'd think that if there were so much infrastructure for cars you could build bike lanes without negatively impacting public transportAfaict the cycling vs. public transport argument is mostly made up by right wing parties as some sort of whataboutism and why bicycles totally can't have infrastructure in the city. So far I saw nobody take it serious because such conflicts are very rare and certainly not the cause of Zürichs transport problemsAt least the city started slashing parking lots now, unfortunately they still don't know how to build proper cycling infrastructure. >>1824880As mentioned, meme argument by meme people, in reality there is little to no conflict between cyclists and public transport and nobody talks about taking space from public transport.
>>1825239>the cycling vs. public transport argument is mostly made up by right wing partiesSo you're just going to ignore that the literal former VBZ director said this is happening, and you'll only accept it as valid criticism if leftists and leftist media say so. And you're also going to ignore that bus lanes are being removed for bikes. Just to know your level of dialectic.
>>1825368I read that article, it is one article, one guy and it is mostly made up. There is like one minor problem at Langstrasse and thats about it. As mentioned, the explicit politics of Zürich is to take space from car traffic and relocate it to cycling infrastructure, public transport is vastly untouched by this. SVP/FDP is just salty that they lose every single vote in Zürich regarding traffic and now they try to play public transport vs le ebil bicycle so they can keep the 80% of traffic areas allocated to cars. Its just not working, people don't buy their bullcrap. I expect them to make more drama in the coming years and cry about every parking space slashed.

>>1825384>"i-it's all just made up">ignoring that trams will be significantly slowed down by Tempo 30>ignoring the precedent of removing bus lanes to put in bike lanes if there's not enough space>muh SVP boogeymanSo basically your cope is that if anyone is against bika infra, it must be because they're actually SVP plants that are just worried about cars, even if it's the literal VBZ director who says so, and Zurich dindu nuffin to harm public transit in favour of bikesjfc there's no reasoning with blockheads like you
>>1825384Also how and where is Zurich reducing car space other than parking, if most streets in zurich are already just one lane for cars?
>>1827805Again, no one gives a shit about SVP and their hypocrite games of playing public transport vs bicycles. It is clear that the additional space has to come from cars and the population of Zürich has demanded this in several public votes and that's why the cry so hard. Tempo 30 has nothing to do with bicycles but with the endless noise created by cars going over legal limits. >>1827807>muh parking spacesagain, go fuck yourself. if you love parking spaces so fucking much go vote for them. Oh sorry you can't because you are some arogant agglo cunt demanding free parking on my street.

DB just canceled half the services on the Schaffhausen-Singen line for the next month and a half. Instead of two trains an hour just one.Christ what a joke of a country Germany is. They can't even operate a simple, short regional train line. I'm glad the Schaffhausen-Singen line will be taken over by SBB GmbH in a few months.
>>1832337Also notice the SBB hat to put in a replacement train from Schaffhausen to Zurich, because the IC coming from Germany was delayed for over half an hour. I don't get why we even run trains to Germany. They should just end at Schaffhausen, and from there the Germans can try and piece together some kind of train service into their shithole.
does anyone know how the current public transport situation is in the Ruhr area due to the 9 euro ticket?
>>1832342Kind of ass, especially the main Regional routes towards Düsseldorf and Cologne. Overfilled and comically late.
>>1832338I'm ashamed for Germany and will commit soduko at the earliest convenience.
>>1832343But it's doable if you are flexible. No problems if you just buy ICE tickets.Your aren't poor anon, are you?
>>1832346It's the least you can do.
>>1832337I guess neither Schaffhausen nor Singen are important enough for DB to justify two trains an hour.
>>1832382DB isn't offering that service as a charity you absolute fucktard, Baden-Württemberg and Schaffhausen pay for it. They're paying for two trains per hour and getting one.
this train goes very hardlove from kazakhstanI hate germans so much it's unreal
>DB can't run the black forest train on the whole stretch because they don't have enough working trains>9€ ticket valid on IC on Gäubahn from Stuttgart to Konstanz (no through trains either because of construction works) but not on IC between Singen and Schaffhausen, where every second regional train is cancelled because of not enough trainswelp what a bummer, the easiest way to get to Germany from Switzerland is the ferry to Friedrichshafen or bus 700 from Konstanz to Ravensburg and take the train to Ulm. I hope the RE Basel-Offenbach isn't too overcrowded. I should have done these trips in June I guess.
>>1834276People that have a job and just use buy a ticket for a fast train don't have that problem.
>>1834326Until they need a slow train to reach their actual destination away from the long-distance station.Are there many local trains without 1st class in Germany?
>>1810023I rode through Germany on 9 Euro ticket in July and depending on the connection it was very packed. Bangladesh or Tokyo style. I did not mind it though. All passangers felt connected by the shared challenge and there were much more conversations between strangers than are usual in Germany.
>>1810229Friends of mine did more of a central-eastern Europe tour hitchhiking but starting off and ending in Germany, so it is possible :)
>>1834326ikr, how dare those fucking plebs expect reliable rail service
>>1834348>All passangers felt connected by the shared challenge
OK update from Germany, half the RE trains Basel-Offenbach are cancelled since August the first until further notice because they don't have enough conductors according to bahn.de, you are supposed to take the remaining RE or regional trains or pay for the ICE. Too bad the next ICE train was cancelled as well.Höllentalbahn was really nice and steep, too bad the Alstom Coradia trains of the Freiburg S-Bahn have small windows for ants.
I pity the Germans for their strong virus variants, looks like they'll have to muzzle up and show papers again in two months.Hopefully CHA-D won't follow suit.
>>1832343>comically lateTo be fair: That's par of the course in that area.>>1832347IC(E) and regional services share the lines in that area.Many good reasons for that - way more than reasons against -, but as a result delays regularly propagate.
>the ferry Konstanz - Meersburg doesn't be count as public transport, 9€ ticket or Baden-Württemberg ticket aren't valid>The bus lines Konstanz-Friedrichshafen and Konstanz-Ravensburg, who use the same ferry are public transport, so the 9€ ticket is valid. But you have to walk the way up to the church in Meersburg, because the bus lines don't stop in the lower town even though there's a bus stop and the bus stopped there to change the bus driver This is comedy gold. Why are Swabians so stingy?
>>1837655If the ferry itself isn't part of the local transport association, but the bus services are, then that's completely unrelated to stinginess.The bus operator is probably paying decent money.
>>1837906You have to admit that preventing people from boarding a stopped bus to exploit a technicality to get a free ferry ride is a symptom of stinginess on both sides.
make sure you have your "running helmet!"
>>1837912>both sidesI see at least three or even four sides in that (cuddle)muddle.
I wanted to say some nice things about German rail for once.Most of the rolling stock is new. I'm not a fan of diesel trains on tracks with catenary, but it's better than no train.The automated information system of the Deutsche Bahn is pretty neat and sophisticated. It can factor in delays, display the approximate arrival time and knows if your train part only runs to a certain town.Cooling of the trains worked flawlessly in the heat.The speed of Regionalbahnen in the south is pretty fast with high track speeds and far distances between stations.I never expected to experience free wifi in Germany and surely not in regional trains, but there it was. And don't worry, shitposters made sure that these wifis are banned from posting on 4chan.
